As we enter the third year of the HSHSRI program, made possible by funding from 11th Hour Racing, we are able to offer affordable composting services for Newport, Middletown, Portsmouth, Jamestown, and Bristol through our new project partner.

By working with Black Earth Compost, we removed the need for subsidy for residential composting, marking a project milestone! Black Earth Compost is a Massachusetts based business that is excited to bring their passion from the Bay State into the Ocean State. To date, HSHSRI has diverted 1,200 tons of food scraps from entering the landfill. We look forward to growing our residential composting community across the entire state together with Black Earth Compost.
